mcconnell just might take the cake. he threatened to filibuster his own bill. mcconnell proposed legislation to give the president the authority to raise the debt ceiling. under the plan, congress would need a two-thirds majority to stop him. it's a proposal that president obama likes. so why would mitch mcconnell propose such a bill? to embarrass the democrats. he wanted to prove that the democrats didn't have the votes for the legislation. harry reid called his bluff and objected to putting the bill up for a vote, but after discussing it with his democratic members he got the support he needed and had a change of heart. claire mccaskill was priding when mcconnell objected to voting on the bill. >> is there an objection to the original request? >> objection is heard. i got whiplash. >> very strange. >> dick durbin reacted to mcconnell's move moments later. >> so this may be a moment in senate history when a senator made a proposal and when given an opportunity for a vote, filibustered his own proposal. i think we have now reached a new spot in the history of the senate we have n

to stop him. it's a proposal that president obama likes. so why would mitch mcconnell propose such a bill? to embarrass the democrats. mcconnell wanted to prove that the democrats didn't have the votes for the legislation. senate majority leader harry reid called his bluff initially, putting the bill up to vote, but after discuss it with democratic member, reid got the support he needed and had a change of heart. claire mccaskill was presiding over the senate when mcconnell objected to voting on the bill. >> is there an objection to the original request? >> i'll object. >> objection is heard. i got whiplash. >> very strange. >> dick durbin reacted to mcconnell's unbelievable move moments later. >> so this may be a moment in senate history when a senator made a proposal and when given an opportunity for a vote, on that proposal, filibustered his own proposal. i think we have now reached a new spot in the history of the senate we have never seen before. >> let's turn to vermont senator bernie sanders, independent. i'm laughing at it too, senator. this just goes to show they are winging it b

, that president obama decided to jump in feet first, because on a lot of other state issues he's said let's the states figure this out. on this one, even though the majority of people in michigan support the bill that you have, the idea of it, and 39% of democrats support it, i was surprised that president obama jumped in. were you? >> i'm a little disappointed actually. i expect something greater from a president, a graduate of harvard and columbia. i think he knows better than that. we're not in any way affecting or diminishing people's right to collective bargaining. fact, i vehemently support people's rights to collective bargaining, but i also support their individual right and freedom to choose who they want to associate with or not to associate with, greta. >> why do you think it would make a difference when it comes to job creation? after the bill is signed by this governor, if it is, what will change in michigan? >> i have no question that the governor will sign the bill. what will change is, this we will be removing one of the last remaining obstacleremaining to s that help busi
that bill right away making michigan the 24th state with the right to work. >>> yesterday president obama joined the chorus of voices condemning this move. >> by the way, what we shouldn't do, i just got to say this, what we shouldn't be doing is taking away your right to bargain for better wages. giving you the right to work for less money. >> nbc is live from lansing, michigan, and from detroit i'm joined by michigan democratic congressman gary peters. ron, i'm going to start with you. describe the scene for us there and what's at stake. >> reporter: good day to you. it just started snowing within the past few minutes. these folks are braving very cold temperatures here but they're very fired up about this legislation being pushed through the state house today. as you have reported it will turn michigan into a right to work state. republican governor rick schneider and other supporters of this legislation says it actually makes michigan more attractive for businesses around the country who may be considering relocating their businesses to michigan. workers are the ones you see behind me
to be hillary clinton supported by bill clinton and presumably a still relatively popular barack obama, trying to win that will be truly the super bowl, and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. >> let's talk about this with cnn contributors l.z. granderson and will cain. agree or disagree on gingrich's assessment? >> gingrich sounds like a detroit lions fan. he's so pessimistic heading into the super bowl. i tend to agree. i think a the lot of people i've spoken to inside the administration as well as just kind of political wonks like us, we all think that hillary is going to run and she's going to be an incredible candidate to try to defeat. with that being said, 2016 is a long ways away. we need to get through 2014. we need to get through the fiscal cliff first. i think we're getting ahead of ourselves by saying she's unbeatable, but she's certainly formidable if she decides to run. >> point out that hillary clinton at every step says she's not running. we'll go ahead and talk about it anyway. will, do you agree with newt gingrich she would be unbeatable, at le
of attention and emotion in michigan. we'll continue to watch it. as we know the governor can sign this bill making michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the country any moment. we'll keep you posted. rick: the obama administration is now cracking down on states refusing to comply with health care reform. the white house announcing any state that refuses to fully expand medicaid to required levels will not receive full funding under obamacare. this as we learn another state, tennessee, has joined more than a dozen others in opting not to create a state-backed insurance exchange. brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. brad, is this because the rollout with obamacare is not exactly going as planned? >> you bet. when only 13 states opt in to medicaid expansion. nine states say they won't. there are a bunch of states sitting on the sidelines freting how they will be able to absorb this kind of cost. it is economic duress on part of the administration. they feel only way they can expand their coverage is threatening the states with funds. fact the matter, rick, 70
, the white house did speak out against this bill last week. with the white house spokesman saying you know, speaking out against it and it's not the first time president obama has been against right to work legislation. you looked at what happened in wisconsin with governor scott walker. his attempt to take away collective bargaining rights and he's spoken out about this, too, saying that unions have helped the meddle class and that they've helped the american economy. >> alison kosik, live for us watching the impending crowds in lansing. stay with cnn today at 2:00 p.m. eastern, when president obama is set to speak live. we're also going to see if he has anything to say about exactly what alison was just reporting on and i have some breaking news. an update about the death of the navy s.e.a.l. in afghanistan that we brought you just about a half hour ago. the defense department is now sending out his identity. and he -- he was petty officer first class nicholas check. 28 years old of monroeville, pennsylvania. special op killed in action during that special forces mission to rescue an ame

[shouting] >> our troopers are prepared for any civil disorder. [chanting] >> our state, our home. >> shepard: it's an enormously controversial measure. >> this legislation isn't about anything except an attack on workers' rights. >> it shouldn't be a condition of employment that you have to join a union and have to pay

an historic bill that could drastically curb the power of unions in the state. president obama slammed the so-called right to work legislation during a visit there yesterday. >> what we shouldn't donie inii doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better working conditions. we shouldn't be doing that. you know, you know, these so-called right to work laws, they don't have to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. >> to weigh in with her perspective is democratic state senator gretchen whitmer. congressional delegate met with the governor asking him not to sign the legislation. awe peeled directly to president obama. is there anything you can do at this point to stop it? >> i got to tell you the people are outraged not only is this anti-worker and anti-family, the way these republicans are going about it is anti-american. introducing it in a lame duck session at the 11th hour, locking people out of the capitol literally, that's what they did last week and tried to shut off my microphone. it is anti-american the way they're going about this and the reason th
by this weekend. so this weekend is the fiscal cliff. >> gretchen: because it takes a while to write the bills. >> eric: and has to originate in the house and right now, john boehner and president obama are miles apart allegedly. it doesn't look like they're gotting any closer. so it's got to go to the house, then gets sent, assuming it passes, to the senate, gets marked up and has to be agreed upon in committees and conference and then eventually gets signed by the president. >> steve: it just takes time. >> eric: there is a holiday. >> gretchen: somebody who had to handle something similarly about a decade ago was rudy guiliani when he was mayor of new york city. he was faced with a circumstance of do i raise taxes? do i cut spending? do i do a combination of both? he was on hannity last night explaining what he ultimately decided to do. >> i was given a report, report said, you have to raise taxes across the board. said nothing about reducing spending. and i said to myself, i wasn't an economic expert then. i became one after being mayor of new york. and i said, this doesn't make sense. if
